Each Friday as part of the Free Friday feature at The NOOK Blog, Barnes & Noble posts a free Nook book that you can get free for one day only.

These free Nook books usually cost money but as a promotion they're free just on that Friday. You'll want to download it that day because it will most likely not become free again.

If your library doesn't subscribe to Overdrive then you can borrow and lend books on your own at eBookFling.

Before you can download a free Nook book you'll need to loan one of the books you already have so you can get a credit which you can use to download a free book. This is a loaning program so you'll have 14 days to read the book before it is returned to the owner.
